The UK is home to many of the world’s heritage listed sites, attracting millions of visitors a year. Not only are these sites visually spectacular, they also offer a fascinating glimpse into the history and culture of the UK over the centuries.

Here are five un-missable sites for you to visit during your holiday in the UK:

Stonehenge, Wiltshire

Incredibly, the origins of Stonehenge continue to baffle historians to this day. With a newly-opened visitor centre, now is a great time to see this world-renowned prehistoric monument. Book your stay at a holiday lodge in Wiltshire and start planning your visit.

Tower of London, London

Built in 1066 by William the Conqueror, the Tower of London has, over the years, been used a palace, a prison, and the site of many a bloody execution. Make sure you visit during your city break in London.

Old and New Towns, Edinburgh

Anyone who has visited Edinburgh will agree that there is something otherworldly about its heritage-listed Old and New Towns. Book your city break in Edinburgh and discover it for yourself.

Bath, Somerset

An astonishing example of Roman architecture, the baths around the natural hot springs of this area were built by the Romans in AD 60s. Book a stay at a holiday park in Somerset and see the baths with your own eyes.

Castles and Town Walls of King Edward, Gwynedd

Discover the castles and town walls of Gwynedd which have been described by UNESCO as the “finest examples of late 13th century and early 14th century military architecture in Europe”. Book your holiday lodge in Gwynedd and start exploring this historical region.
